3.0 out of 5 stars Good selection of B-Sides, 8 Jan 2013
This review is from: Memory of the future (Audio CD)
Bought both CD singles over a week ago but only just got around to listening to it last night (and I've been a PSB fan for 25 years)... The remix of the single is OK but I much prefer the album version, the real stand out track is 'Listening' not as epic as the version by Morten Harket but sung with a bit more sincerity by Neil, 'One Night' is probably a 'grower' as is 'Inside'... they don't hook you instantly but they aren't poor B-sides either, and that might well be the trouble with PSB today. There seems to be no real passion. The CD of Remixes are OK (Will ANYONE actually listen to them more than once?)...the strongest mixes are the Digital Dog Club and Dub mixes. Looking back over the singles released from the album (I presume this will be the last), the B-sides have been pretty damn good in most cases, but this will not be looked back upon as a 'Classic' PSB period.

This single has failed even to make it into the UK Top 100 chart. The writing was on the wall with the release of 'Winner' as the first single from the album, whomever PSB take advise from as regards songs for contention as singles should be fired, any chance of the album or singles from it being a 'hit' went right out the window with the release of 'Winner'. The packaging is again the cheap card slip sleeve but at least this time they are embossed with a glossy coating over parts with tiny 'cut-out' 'arrows' and 'crosses'. Oh!, and PSB fans who give everything a 5 star review... please BE HONEST, is this 'True Faith' by New Order rip-off really up there with 'West End Girls' 'Being Boring' etc ???
